## How do you calculate square feet into yards?

Multiply the rectangle’s length by its width to determine the area in square feet. For example, multiply 15 feet by 12 feet to yield an area of 180 square feet (15 x 12 = 180). Divide the square footage of the rectangle by 9 to convert to square yards: 180 square feet divided by 9 yields 20 square yards (180 / 9 = 20).
